Strikes Garden Centre in Stokesley reopens after fire

Strikes Garden Centre - temporary outdoor space - 725 x 500

A garden centre in North Yorkshire has re-opened following a serious fire earlier this year.

The Strikes Garden Centre at Stokesley almost burned to the ground in April but has re-opened in temporary premises on the same site, having engaged Spaciotempo - a temporary building specialist - to help rebuild.   

The temporary  2,025 sq m facility offers a garden shop, gift department, craft department, clothing area and 170 seater restaurant, alongside a large plant area.

David Yardley, CEO of Klondyke Group - the owner of Strikes - said:

"We would like to thank our loyal customers and the local community for their support in the wake of the fire that destroyed our previous building in April.

“Like a phoenix rising from the ashes, Strikes will embark on an exciting new chapter as it re-opens in its temporary base. Spaciotempo, which supplied the building, worked incredibly hard to ensure that we were up and running in time for our peak summer season and that the building looks first-class.

“We are very much looking forward to welcoming our customers to the new-look garden centre where they will find all the facilities they know and love us for, from our fabulous plant area to a 170-seat restaurant and gift shop.”

Strikes will clear and rebuild the site over the next year to 18 months

Spaciotempo MD, Scott Jameson, said:

"We are delighted that Strikes will be opening its doors to customers this week after suffering such a devastating blow earlier in the year.

“The garden centre has a special place in the hearts of Stokesley residents and it was sorely missed when it was closed. We are pleased that we have been able to play a key part in helping the business to re-launch in time for the summer, which is guaranteed to be an extremely busy season thanks to the glorious weather we are enjoying.

“Strike’s temporary base has been kitted out with all the features and facilities that customers expect to see in a garden centre – as well as many more. It is the perfect base for the business to operate from while work on a permanent structure is carried out.”
